E. Manning Fires Back in Long-Distance Spat With T. Barber
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is in a long-distance verbal tussle with his former tailback, Tiki Barber.
After Barber, now a broadcaster with NBC, said on the network's Sunday night telecast that some of Manning's attempts to lead the team last season were "almost comical," Manning made critical remarks to reporters today in Albany, N.Y., of Barber, who retired after last season.
"I guess I could have questioned his leadership skills last year, calling out the coach [Tom Coughlin] and having articles about him retiring in the middle of the season saying he lost the heart," Manning said. "As a quarterback, you're reading your running back has lost the heart to play the game and it's about the 10th week--I can see that a little bit at times. [But] I'm not going to get concerned and I'm going to go out and play ball."
